The Mass Media acts as a key linkage institution between the people and policymakers, and has a profound impact on the political policy agenda. Numerous scholars have found a link between the Mass Media and public opinion. The Media’s watchdog function helps to restrict politicians. In other words, every new government proposal is met with skepticism because reporters view their job as a crusade against foul play and unfairness in government and society.
Information is the fuel of democracy, yet media coverage tends to be superficial. Because of economic pressures, the media is sometimes biased towards dramatic stories that attract people’s interests rather than extended analysis of complex issues.
Political activists depend heavily on the Media to get their ideas placed on the government agenda. Policy activists are often called policy entrepreneurs. Policy Entrepreneurs are the people who invest their political capital in an issue; policy entrepreneurs can either be in or out of government, elected or appointed officials, or interest groups or research institutions.
In the nutshell, by increasing public attention to specific problems, the media influences how the public evaluates political leaders. This is done through framing means how an issue is presented. The media also has a dramatic effect on how the public evaluates specific events by emphasizing one particular news aspect over others. Therefore, it is important to examine any political agenda and the media’s role in shaping it.
The objective of this conference is to initiate and promote a discussion on changing role of Politics in context to people and the role of Media. This forum will provide the platform to research scholars, academicians, Politician, Social activists, Media professional and students to discuss the issues related to Media and the contemporary challenges from the polity in all its different dimensions.
